Sankofa African Bar is located in the middle of Pelourinho and is a great spot in Salvador for live music - salsa, semba, samba, reggae, MPB etc. There is also DJ music from DJ Sankofa and DJ Vasco spinning out international beats with lots of African and Carribean music. The bar is located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of a historic building with lovely brick walls. It is decorated in a bohemian Afro chic style with flags and African masks. The fantastic mix of locals and tourists coupled with the great live music make this place memorable. Tuesdays with Salsa and Fridays with Magary playing semba and samba must not be missed. There is also an African night that is free. More details are available on the website at www.sankofabrasil.com. Yeba, Yeba, Yeba.
